Nexus 5 leaks once more before it’s officially announced

image

The glorious Nexus 5 Google ‘s most recent pure Android device seems to have leaked one more time in this video showing off its build which seems to be an earlier prototype since the Nexus logo we’ve seen in later builds isn’t present. The single hole through the glass where the earpiece is also looks very unfinished as does the grill in the front glass on the bottom left which all bring credence to this definitely not being a final build. It does give us an idea of what the phones design & materials used will look like & I personally am very happy that it looks like it will have the same soft touch material as the Nexus 7 2013 since it feels great in the hand & adds a great deal of grip compared to the glass or plastics & especially metals, plus it will match our Nexus 7 2013’s beautifully 😉

Check out the video below from the leakster, we’d all like to thank them but sure wish they would have show a little more of Android 4.4 & not chrome so much

Is Samsung’s Galaxy S4 enough to compete with the HTC ONE?

image

Samsung launched the long awaited Galaxy S4 last night in New York City by showing the device in real world situations via some terrible acting in its hour long play…. I mean presentation.
They showed off the mass of new features included in the Galaxy S4 including Air view, Smart Pause, Smart Scroll & much much more. Check out Samsung’s video at the bottom of the page for more.
The Galaxy S4 stays with the same sleek & stylish design as the Galaxy S3 & Galaxy Note 2, with it polycarbonate build. This time they have dropped the hyper-glaze finish & went with a nice textured look that looks a little like Alligator skin. They have also made the edges a little less curved but it still feels great in the hand.

The Galaxy S 4 features a 5-inch full HD Super AMOLED display, 13MP rear camera, 2MP front camera and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. As for what’s powering the Galaxy S4 there will be two versions of processors, The unlocked international version will pack a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 5 processor and the North American or Carrier version will get an equally fast 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor. The CPU with be accompanied by PowerVR SGX544MP and Adreno 320 GPU respectively. Both versions have 2gb of RAM as well.
The Galaxy S4 will be available from the big 3 & from Koodo at the end of April. It’s expected to be selling for around $700 so start saving your penny’s because April’s just around the corner.

Well what do you think, is it enough to compete with the HTC ONE? Will you be getting one?
Let us know in the comments below.
